Broadband Giants Quietly Blame Verizon For New Neutrality 'Mess'

It looks as though Verizon is currently filling the roll of redheaded step-child of the broadband industry.

Verizon effectively got greedy. And while their lawsuit was successful and did overturn the rules, the court actually declared that the FCC did have some, albeit shaky, authority to try and regulate broadband ISPs. That brings us to the FCC's current attempt to not only craft new rules (that may actually cover wireless networks) but to possibly do it in a more legally sound fashion by reclassifying ISPs as utilities under Title II.
